    Sorry that's happening, 'Ghost'.

    That happens once in a while with a user name that has special characters such as the single quotes your user name has.

    I've moved your thread to the Suggestion Box and Feedback area where Phases the Administrator checks often (I'll also PM him a link to this thread).

    He has the Admin tools to change user names or resolve the issue in other ways.

    As Frisco said, it's a known issue caused by the characters in his user name. ;)
